Stayed here end January for two weeks. It looks impressive from the outside and rooms are very spacious with very comfy beds. The pool was an added bonus but was always cloudy! The staff are very friendly and put themselves out to make our stay memorable, however, for the wrong reasons. My sister and her friend were asleep in their room on the first floor and had an unexpected visitor in the early hour of the morning of our last day. A young man climbed onto the balcony over the bank, into the communal room between the bedrooms, as the patio door did not close/lock, due to ill fitting patio doors. That particular night they had not locked their room door and were woken by a man rifling through her bag at the side of her. They gave chase but he was off. He stole money and jewellery that was very sentimental. The bank security guard and the lad downstairs were reportedly asleep at the time. Barreto was very sympathetic and when viewing the CCTV footage, the thief had tried every bedroom door but recognised the guy and promised to handle it. We had heard from other holiday makers that this wasn't the first time it had happened in the resort. As it was the last day of our holiday, he would do his best to sort it without involving the police. Big mistake, we should have gone to the police ourselves, apart from reporting it to the bank to check their security, nothing had been done to get their belonging back. By the time we were due to go to the airport, it was too late to report it and couldn't get a crime number to claim when we got home. We were asked again, to keep it to ourselves. I apologies for not posting this earlier but we were hoping for some feedback but not a word, not even an apology. Call us naive but once we were out of the county, this problem would go away with us. I think it's about time people were made aware. Like I say, lovely hotel, staff friendly until something goes wrong but be warned, lock your doors and beware of the light footed opportunist.
